For those of you well versed in NZ indie pattern companies you know about Papercut Patterns. They legit are the cool kids in the pattern company crowd. Their designs are on point and so effortlessly chic. Their patterns take me back to high school where all the cool kids were from NZ, and honestly they're just so much cooler than us Aussies. I will never repeat that line again because I value my life, and I'd like to be welcomed back into my country one day.
So, the Meridian dress was one I actually found on the foldline website one evening. Even though I owned and made the Sapporo coat pattern from Papercut before, I must of had a brain fart and missed the Meridian pattern on their site. But, how could I have missed it? It's amazing! It's the perfect balance of femininity and street style. I made my first one immediately after buying and printing out the PDF at home. I cut out the size large and was happy with the fit on me. Bear in mind, I'm built like a Kardashian on the top and bottom. My first one was made out of a pretty cool pink and yellow fabric that resembled a fried egg. I picked it up at Hobby Lobby a very long time ago, and was just sitting on it. Initially, it was a working muslin that ended up being pretty well received on Instagram. So much so it was shared by Papercut on their feed! IMAGINE ME FALLING OFF MY CHAIR HERE! I had never been shared by a company before, so needless to say, I felt like I did them proud!
